Incredible ending sequence...
31 December 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

"You scared me!" "Relax, it's not that kind of a shower scene." ~Justin and Brian

This episode had a plethora of amazing scenes, from Brian and Justin's incredible shower scene together early in the episode to Ben and Michael's bedroom discussion to Ted's orgy of sorts. Ted has become completely immune to porn, so he tries essentially living a day as Brian. As much as I'd like to enjoy the Justin/Ethan relationship, it's just not possible. Justin is lying to Brian, and as much as Brian may seem like he doesn't care, he really is hopelessly in love with Justin. Michael cares about Brian, too, which is exactly why he spoke to him about Justin's problems. Leda has been a very interesting character this season, and it was kind of sad to see Lindsay and Melanie treat her so poorly. I really liked the bowling scene, and it was great seeing Ben step up to the plate like that. Robert Gant is just spectacular, and Emmett and Ted also had a really sweet moment. Debbie's relationship with the cop was really sweet as well. I loved the ending with Justin and Brian, and such passion in their kissing. That has to be one of the best on-screen kisses of all time.
